WIS 175 Resurfacing Project Updates from WI-DOT

Work occurring North of Richfield, on STH 175 includes removal and replacement of guardrail, landscaping, surface layer of asphalt, pavement marking, and new signs. To date, WE-Energies Gas has not lowered their facility at Scenic North and Western. Once their work is complete, the contractors will finish grading, installing concrete curb & gutter and place the first lift of asphalt. The barricades will remain in place until all work is complete. The asphalt surface is not scheduled until October, when the entire project from Germantown to Slinger is ready to be paved.

South of the Village, along STH 175, traffic is maintained on Lannon Road with access to STH 175 to the south. The north half of the roundabout is under construction with “Road Closed” from Willow Creek to Lannon Road in both directions. Curb and gutter is scheduled to start the week of July 17th followed by asphalt pavement. Storm sewer is currently being installed from Willow Creek to Hilltop. The roadway will be reduced to one lane of traffic and access to driveways during the installation may be limited. Once concrete curb and gutter is ready for, the contractor will notify each resident on access. Private driveways with proposed curb and gutter are paved thru with gaps left at businesses. If there is a medical need for access, you will have to notify Jeanne Marchant. On August 9th, traffic on Lannon Road will halt completely while the contractor completes all the inner work at the roundabout. Barricades will be placed at the Park 'n Ride at the freeway with no access. All traffic will utilize I-41 to CTH "Q" as the detour route. Traffic going eastbound will stay on CTH “Q” to I-41. Barricades will be placed at the west project limits on Lannon Road with no access. 

While the roundabout is under construction, there will be work done to remove and replace the concrete box culvert at Willow Creek. Initial work will focus on digging a temporary channel for the water. The structure work is anticipated to take about 6 weeks. The completion date for this work is August 26th. However, STH175 will remain closed to thru traffic. The completion date for the entire project is early November.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Jeanne Merchant at Jeanne.Marchant@dot.wi.gov or call 262-328-5114.
